is he going to take away? what are the take aways? there are important issues, iran, sear yashgs the peayria a process. but this last one, the amazing miss, if you will. president obama when he started his first year in office, he said the peace process with the palestinians was going to be a priority and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the sing
different from the private conversations. i think obama brings two very tough, unpalatable messages to the israelis. number one, don't even think about using military force against iran's nuclear weapons program. and number two, you need to make more concessions to the palestinians to try and reach the two-state solution. so i think the private talks are going to be very, very tough. melissa: wow! so, given that, i mean let's move over to syria for a second. one of israel's top officials saying, it is quote, apparently clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obama administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed the opposition used chemical weapons. the opposition claimed the assad regime used them. our ambassador in syria, by the way is in washington, there was no chemical weapons attack at all. here is the bot
rehe main as dug in as ever and as iran is refusing to budge on the nuclear program. what exactly is mr. obama hoping to accomplish here and why now? why now? >> ambassador john bolton is the former u.n. ambassador to the united nations and a fox news contributor and let's start with that, ambassador. why now? why in year five of the presidency does he now go to israel? >> well, i think because he goes on his terms. there's no domestic political down side now, given that he's faced his last election. so, he can really go and use it for his own purposes, and i think what's interesting here is that there will be a real split on this trip between the public symbolism and the photo opportunities on the one hand, and the substantive conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu will have in private. >> megyn: only 10% of the israeli public, according to the latest polls, has a favorable opinion of our president. just 10% say they have a favorable opinion of him. that's a surprising number and it's not exactly the group before whom he's used to speaking. >> right. well, i'd l
to the liberal opposition in iran or egypt or offering -- bahrain. as well as our political dysfunction and budgetary issues here in the united states. the ironic part of this is a president obama came to office in 2008 talking about impeachment, but i think the legacy is quickly becoming one of disengagement from this region, stepping back. as i mentioned, i was just on a trip that took me not only to the gulf, but farther afield. the striking thing was that for all the differences that our allies have on syria or political islam or iran? the one talking point -- or iran, the one talking point i heard from all done is that they're looking for clear articulations of u.s. policy. they're looking for a stronger role, a more active role for the united states. we often feel in the united states that we are not wanted. maybe that is true to an extent in some quarters. we feel sometimes -- i think tennis alluded to this when he was talking about the way the it administration began -- that because of mistakes or missteps in places like iraq, that people would like to see us go. in fact, the op
's right to defend itself. he's stressed the importance of keeping iran from developing a nuclear weapon. >>> congresswoman michele bachmann is taking heat for her claims about lavish spending by president obama. we showed you what happened when our dana bash tried to question the congresswoman about the comments she made at a recent cpac gathering. >> there's four americans killed. >> congresswoman, but you're the one who brought it up. >> bachmann's claim drew fire from one of her fellow conservatives, bill o rilely from fox news. >> this would be much ado about nothing if not for trivial attacks obscuring problems in this country. does the president live well in the white house? yes, he does. is there money wasted there? you bet there is. but every other president in history has lived in comfort and looks like president bush the younger had a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. >> he says bachmann is playing small ball with the president and can't backup her criticism. >>> to the politics behind
, but there's also the ongoing anxiety about iran and a nuclear weapons. >> reporter: right. certainly a lot of ground to cover, martin. i think that one of president obama's goals will be to really send a strong message to prime minister benjamin netanyahu as well as the people of israel and other people in the region that he stands firmly with israel. as you know, the president and the prime minister have had a somewhat rocky relationship. so it's partially to smooth over that relationship. the president has taken some criticism, particularly during the last presidential campaign, that he wasn't a strong enough ally to israel. i think part of it will be to smooth over that perception. but i think you will see the president reiterate the fact the united states will do whatever is necessary to make sure that iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon. of course, that is a big concern for israel and will also sort of reiterate the united states will try to continue to isolate syria and to make sure that at some point assad does step down from power soon. so i think those are two of the key issues you'
washington post" has outlined what this trip means from president obama to israel and it is a pretty daunting list. it is to reaffirm the u.s. commitment to israel, security talks about iran's nuclear weapons program, also israel's red line. discuss the movement of arms into the syrian rebel territory on the lebanon border. are the president and benjamin netanyahu likely to find common ground? as peter points out in such a short period of time? this is just a quick trip. >> there is no doubt, thomas, that they've had a very difficult personal relationship with each other. but the president has consistently supported israel's military goals and objectives and to secure it and he in fact, his first stop is going to be visiting the iron dome antimissile installation when he arrives. insofar as the personal ties between the two men it's been probably part of the reason why the president's standing among the israeli public has been so low. not that netanyahu himself is not at fault for this dysfunctional personal relationship but the israeli people want to see from the president he is truly commit
to issue some type of apology. did they get something in return? i hope so. otherwise it looks like obama is leaning on the israelis. bad signal to the rest of the region. >> chris: with all of the focus on syria and iran there was relatively little talk about the prospects for a peace deal between the israelis and palestinians but the president did address it in this speech in jerusalem. >> iit is possible. it is possible. i'm not saying it is guaranteed. i can't even say that it is more likely than not but it is possible. >> chris: juan, the big news here is that the president seemed to be dropping his in is siftence that israel had to stop its settlement construction first before there were direct talks. in fact he kind of leaned on the palestinians and said look if you make a final deal the settlements will take care of themselves. how big a movement is that? >> a big movement in terms of reframing the discussion because at the moment everybody is frozen, saled. they can't come to a decision about the settlements because obviously the palestinians view it as occupied territories. the
of palestinian authority before making his way to jordan. during this trip mr. obama is expected to issue a very strong warning to iran they will not be able to develop nuclear weapons. >> coming up this week on wall street a host of major companies will report their earnings. we'll hear from fedex, general mills, nike, and tiffany. the fed announces its latest rate decision. that comes on wednesday. we'll be listening very closely to comments from central bankers on overall economic recovery especially after a particularly strong february jobs report. then on thursday we'll get the latest existing home sales numbers for the month of february. those are key because existing home sales actually make up about 90% of the overall housing market. that will show us if this rebound we've seen seeing this housing is continuing. we'll track all of that and the latest business news for you on cnn money. >>> a.j. hammer, this is what we're watching this week. celebrity obsession with the jodi arias trials. the stars can't stop talking and tweeting about the wild trial including aubrey o'day. don't miss my
in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a breath, you're too late. not much can be done now given the levels of distrust. some will say the most important thing is to start to improve the personal relationship. you know, as well as i do, perhaps even better, this president and this prime minister do not have a good personal relationship, but given the issues, iran, syria, and the president's hope that down the road a few months a reviving peace conversations, they have to get more trust, if not peace. >> john, you spent time in gaza. what was that like crossing in, crossing back, what did you see? >> reporter: it was fascinating, wolf. my first time, a very e elaborate security apparatus, even more so when you come back from gaza into israel, they take a cl
vindicated. redlines work. i told you so, mr. president. and netanyahu -- obama will sea maybe that means we have more time. if iran is diverting, we're not on the brink, but netanyahu will come back and say, look, with thiessen trifumings, they can summer forward to the 230 to 250-kilograms they need for 90% uranium within the 30-40 day dash. so, i think that ironically they'll probably -- not looking for confrontation but they can ask pointed questions even in a cordial atmosphere, about that. and each one will look at that iaea report and read into it what they want to read into it. netanyahu redlines. obama, maybe we have more time. i think the second issue is the concern over the kazakhstan diplomacy. and here, i think that there's the fear that the united states is heading to a deal that israelis may consider a bad deal. you can say the israel idea have no choice but to take it. the best deal they're going to get, and that is a 20% deal on uranium, and mr. prime minister, didn't you draw the line at 20%. he would say irdrew that but that was for a -- i didn't mean to say anything under
. and in korea, the north a cyber attack against the south and iran is closer to obtaining a nuclear bomb than ever before. with all of this mind, i think it's safe to say president barack obama would pose the following question he may answer it slightly different today. >> what have you accomplished? >> well, a couple of key things, i think that we've restored america's standing in the world. that's confirmed by polls. >> sean: the president may want to check the polls again, in the three plus years that have passed since he made that statement, america' standing has diminished. why? because he's been interested in playing golf with tiger, palling around with jay-z and beyonce and now four years of his presidency we're able to report for the first time our commander-in-chief has finally stepped foot in israel. welcome, mr. president. earlier today the president met face-to-face with both israeli president shimone peres and benjamin bb netanyahu and took questions from his friends in the lame stream media and did not have an explanation why he's done nothing to promote peace in the middle east
, israelis are cautious when talking about attacking iran. it is understood that whether it is israel that attacks or the united states, there will be an iranian retaliation against israel. when obama talks about all military options on the ground, of course he doesn't want to repeat an iraq scenario of taking over the country, although one thing may lead to another. i think the assumption is if the united states reaches a position, in which all diplomacy has been exhausted and there is no other choice but to launch some kind of a strike against iran, then united states will be able to take care of whatever launchers iran has that could threaten israel and provide some kind of assistance and missile defense to protect the israelis. it won't be 100% in fool proof protection but it can go a long way in assuring israelis. >> all right. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >>> up next, biden and bloomberg together and taking on gun violence today. what meaningful reform are we actually going to get? the assault weapons ban is out. the fate of background checks is uncertain. the

"washington post" reporting iran is doubling done on its efforts in the face of severe sanctions with one top cleric saying iran will resist air rrrogant powers. what steps should the united states and israel take to stop iran there developing a nuclear weapon. >> >> you're asking easy questions today. i think the answer is there are no steps. i mean, you could gas up the airplanes and get ready for air strikes, but i'm not sure that will keep iran from getting a nuclear weapon. it will certainly delay them. this country is very intent despite diplomacy, despite sanctions, despite threats of air strikes, they're intent to becoming a nuclear pow person so he we might begin to consider what does the world look like with iran as a nuclear power. wi because they are intent on being a nuclear power. >> i think a lot of the focus in terms of the sanctions has many about the u.s. and western civilization. it's really time now
zbigniew brzezinski criticized the obama administration handling of the syrian civil war and discusses how the west should respond to iran's nuclear program. >> we have explored now and some .ep the state of iraq today we have looked at what the war has cost the american taxpayer and the american economy and how that relates to the fiscal problems that we are facing today. we turn now to the geopolitical lessons of this conflict. i think the heart of this discussion. one of the great strengths of this nation, indeed i would say one of our defining characteristics, is the americans' willingness, inclination, capacity always to look to the future, to embrace it. that ability has driven our growth for several centuries and certain accounts for some of our greatest achievements. but it has a heavy cost. and that cost is that we are far too quick to turn the page and to leave our past behind relatively unexamined. edmund burke over 250 years ago who warned that those who don't know history are condemned to repeat it. i must say, always thinking about that this week when i read a poll that 45% o
on how along iran is but on the fundamental question do the israelis believe president obama would use the military option he says they're shoulder to shoulder. >> i do believe that the united states is following carefully the time and the progress. it's an estimation, if something would happen earlier, i'm sure he would pay attention to that change. the main question you asked me, and the real answer i am giving you, i trust what the president says. i am free of doubts. i think he is a man that i respect his words and he is a man that thinks before he speaks. >> reporter: will be interesting to watch as the trip unfolds. prime minister netanyahu as you know is a bit more conservative than the israeli president, whether prime minister netanyahu also will say on the record he is free of doubts about the president's resolve when it comes to iran. >> we'll look forward to that joint news conference scheduled for the two leaders. john, we'll check back with you tomorrow. let's bring in our chief political analyst gloria borger. this iran issue is a very difficult one for the president to n

that the israeli government is interested in occupying iran and i don't think the obama administration wants to do so. it seems that the strategy, if there is one, is to make some kind of surgical strike to knock out the iranian nuclear capacity. and i'm just curious, is that possible or is that an example of faith-based strategy lacks and for the general in particular, in that you have raised the importance of understanding how the opponent is going to respond, what is the likely spot of the iranians to what is, what we hope to be a surgical strike such as the israeli delivered on iraq? >> i think we got it. why do they deal with iraq and iran, and there's another issue, which i want to address. on iraq, the question is for some, who bears responsibility? i think the answer is very obvious, we do. we started the war. the iraqis didn't attack us. we went in. some may feel for legitimate reasons, others may feel for dubious reasons. some like myself feel for fraudulent reasons. but in any case the fact is we started it so we are responsible for what happened. i wish we had done better, even though
